Man Survives After Climbing Light Pole, Shock, Fall

Firefighters in Lauderhill say a man is still alive after climbing a light pole, getting shocked by a wire, catching fire, and falling 50-feet back to the ground.

A fire crew just happened to be at State Road 7 and NW 19th Street responding to a traffic crash when the incident happened on Tuesday.

The injured man suffered third-degree burns to 60% of his body and was taken to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale in critical condition.

Cell phone video shows the man walking down the sidewalk and then climbing the pole.

Florida Power & Light says the unidentified man was not one of their employees.
